New editor at Orlando Biz Journal
Barth succeeds Ken Cogburn, who recently left the American City Business Journal newspaper.
After first joining OBJ in 1992 as research director, Barth was named copy editor/special publications editor two years later and assumed a reporting role, as well. In 1997, she was named associate managing editor, overseeing the paper’s special sections, prior to becoming managing editor.
“Cindy’s 14 years of business reporting and editing experience at Orlando Business Journal provides her with a depth of knowledge and understanding of the issues facing the local business community that few other journalists in the region possess,” says publisher Ann Sonntag.
“As managing editor, Cindy has garnered the respect and loyalty of a team of reporters who, over the past decade, have won hundreds of national, state, regional and local awards. As editor, I am confident that she will take OBJ to even greater heights.”
